Seal of the Dragon
“Seal of the Dragon” black and white scrimshaw on large sperm whale’s tooth by David Pudelwitts. The powerful dragon appears to be guarding his mountain retreat, searching for intruders. The crest of the dragon family appears on the tip of the tooth. This is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us, probably done in the 70s. The artist is no longer creating scrimshaw, making this even more collectible. Heavy tooth (14.6 oz.) in excellent condition.
This scrimshaw is done on a sperm whale’s tooth. Federal legislation bans the interstate shipment of whale ivory. It can only be shipped intrastate (within the state). All of our whale ivory is located with our associate in the state of Florida. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Florida. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Florida, we can ship to that specified address in order to comply with Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
